SOURCE: my kitchenaid processor is not working

The Kitchenaid food processors have a few safety features implimented. If the unit is not assembled properly, this may prevent the unit from turning on. I am thinking this is an issue of assembly because the light is on, so the unit is definitely getting power.

Proper assembly is below:

If it isn't all ready, please disassemble the entire unit. This means removing the blade and/or disc, blade, removing work bowl, work bowl lid, and blade.

Start by placing the work bowl onto the motor base. The work bowl handle should be facing at 9 o'clock, which is out to your left. Rotate the handle downward until it locks in at the 6 o'clock position, which will lock over the center of the button panel.

Repeat the process with the work bowl lid. The blade does not need to be present for the motor to engage, if this is an assembly issue.

Tip

The Cuisinart 7 cup food processor will not start?


Check out this options Remove the work bowl completely. Turn the machine on and use a pen to depress the dark grey or black button on the base of the Food processor. If the motor doesn't spin, it needs repair. If there is spinning:Make sure the handle of the bowl is facing the front of the food processor. Place the lid tab just to the left of the handle and slide it toward the handle until it won't turn anymore. Remove the pusher sleeve from the lid and reinsert it with the lock facing the front of the food processor. Slide the lock into the locked position. If it still doesn't work, replace the third piece on the work bowl - the one piece that you haven't replaced. It will then work. This will help. good luck.

Need a product manual


Try going here:

Food Processors Product Manuals Cuisinart com

Look for a machine with the same style / bowl size as yours if your specific machine is not available. You can even download more than one to get additional recipes!

The main important thing if you have an older machine is to make sure when putting it together that the feed tube from the top aligns with the part of the bowl with the spring, so the button on the base gets depressed correctly. For some, the spring mechanism is on the front with the handle, for some it is opposite the handle.

If you put the top on backwards it won't work correctly, and you might break the catch when trying to get it apart... either on the lid, or the bowl, or both. It can be an expensive mistake.

Need to clean inside of handle on KitchenAid food processor


The plastic for the work bowl / handle is molded and one piece and cannot be disassembled. My best recommendation is to call Kitchenaid customer service to see what recommendations they have. Within one year warranty, they may replace the work bowl at no cost.

Their toll-free number is: 1-800-541-6390.

Tried to use my powerprep pluss cuisinart food processor and nothing happens. The on button lights up but nothing happens when i press the pulse button.


Remove the work bowl from the base of the food processor, and separate the bowl, lid, and pusher sleeve.
Plug the base into the wall outlet, turn the food processor ON, and then use a pen to press in the dark grey or black button on top of the base of the food processor - if you hear some kind of noise, then your motor is still good.
Put the work bowl on first, with the handle facing the front of the food processor.
Put the lid on, with the lid lined up with the handle of the work bowl.
Put the pusher sleeve in the lid, with the metal piece facing the front of the processor.
Your processor should now turn on.

If it doesn't call Cuisinart and see if you are still in-warranty (3-year warranty).

Good luck!

Motor runs but switch won't activate despite new parts


Make sure the handle of the bowl is facing the front of the food processor. Place the lid tab just to the left of the handle and slide it toward the handle until it won't turn anymore. Remove the pusher sleeve from the lid and reinsert it with the lock facing the front of the food processor. Slide the lock into the locked position. If it still doesn't work, replace the third piece on the work bowl - the one piece that you haven't replaced. It will then work.

Bowl handle doesn't make connection


I had this problem, I finally stuffed a tiny piece of tin foil into the hole the spring is supposed to go into to activate the machine. It works, but it is always on, even if the bowl is not locked into place so I have to be careful. I just store it unplugged.

Need food processor lid


The lid-lip on my small Braun processor broke too, damn things can't handle being accidentally dropped by a fumble-fingered me!

I still manage to work it, I just need to manually hold the broken bit in place (so the safety mechanism lets the motor start), or just use another long thin doodah, like a wooden kabob skewer, to depress the lever. Not elegant, and it means you have to use both hands at the same time (one to activate the pulse button, the other to hold the skewer in place), but it works.

Anyone had any luck supergluing the broken bit back on?
